Somerset County Cricket Scrapbook - Vic Marks

London: Souvenir Press, 1984, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “Although Somerset has always been known for its great characters and individual heroes, it is only in the last ten years that it has become a force in cricket, with a recent record of successes that has made it one of the most popular county sides in England. While not attempting to provide a full history of the Somerset County Cricket Club, the book looks back at some of the legendary figures who acquired a national reputation: Arthur Wellard, mighty hitter of the thirties and forties and a notable medium-pace bowler as well, Harold Gimblett, Somerset’s regular opening batsman of the thirties, forties and early fifties, Maurice Tremlett, Brian Langford and many more.”
